Guest Blogger of the week: Neal Freeman

A HUGE Thank you to Mariah MacCarthy for re-invigorating Full of IT last week! What a great topic - one we should be talking more about, I think.

We are very excited to announce next week's guest blogger - Neal Freeman!

Neal J. Freeman is a director, producer, writer, sound designer, and former actor who currently serves as Executive Director of Brooklyn's The Gallery Players. He has directed nine shows for that theater, including last season's IT-nominated new musical Top of the Heap. Other companies in the city he has worked for include Ensemble Studio Theatre, Sonnet Rep, Naked Angels, and Epic Theater Center, in addition to serving as an assistant for a half dozen shows with OBIE-winning Ridge Theater. Neal wrote, directed, and produced Fatboy Romeo for FringeNYC in 2006, and produced and directed in Week 38 of Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Days/365 Plays in NYC with a showing at New World Stages. He is currently at work on a new play based on a family WWII story called A Letter from Bataan, which was workshopped at the 2010 Lincoln Center Directors Lab and is the recipient of a 2010 Seed Grant from The Drama League Directors Project.
